Title: Can't get Reflection on Building to Show Ocean
Post by: CBurns on July 03, 2013, 08:05:04 pm
For some reason, when I set a reflection plane on glass (or any material), and the ocean would be in the reflection, the ocean doesn't show! There are just boats hovering over green land.

Currently this is a limitation of the Reflection Planes, and is difficult to fix.

The option is to use the Reflection Sphere Object and position suitable to get the best reflection of the scene including water or ocean.

Does this work for video rendering?

For the Reflection Plane, unfortunately no.  Not for Build Mode, Preview for Photo or Movie Mode, and not in final renders at any quality level for photos or videos.  This includes the water plane and the Ocean.

Please use the Reflection Sphere Object.

Understand and appreciate that may not be the preferred option, but there are current technical limitations.   :(
